A Mountain of Mulch Moved for Tiny Plants

North Creek is home to Chinook salmon, primary orca food, and the forest acts as a giant sponge keeping waters clean and cool.


Jan. 28th Helpin’ Out at Idylwood Park

Help create more salmon for orcas starting close to home at Idylwood Creek. We'll be having fun with our friends mulching recently planted trees and removing invasive plants to support the native trees. Idylwood Creek historically had many salmon howver in recent years only a handful have returned according to salmon watchers, however kokanee are improving. Improved vegetation will provide valuable shade and cool, clean water for salmon in the creek! DSC_0422
